Nothing 'naughty' about it.
Honda (and most other manufacturers) have done this for years, there will usually be an 'S' spec made to satisfy Homologation rules, it'll have less stuff in it and therefore be lighter, therefore giving better economy figures etc.
If you want one, you can have one, but it will be factory built. These spec are also used when building stuff for the emergency services as they have their own radio/communication stuff fitted.
